How can you not love a town originally named for its famous bacon corn bread? First known as Cracklintown – a name given for the cracklin bread which was made in the town in the 1800s – Laytonsville is a small town in northeast Montgomery County with big charm, rich history and good food (even a century after it got its gastronomic name!).
If you live in Laytonsville, be prepared to enjoy pizza, cooked lovingly in a 900°F wood-fired brick oven by Edwin Cruz and other staff at Julliano’s Italian Café. Cruz’ parents bought the place in 2006 after having worked there for over a decade and have been taking care of the community’s dining out needs ever since!
“In this community, everyone knows each other,” said Cruz. “They are always welcome to meet up at Julliano’s and enjoy a nice meal. It’s a great environment and we welcome everyone with open doors and open arms!”
Julliano’s is not only known for its pizza with fresh, handmade dough, but Cruz says the steak and cheese subs alone are worth a trip.
Just a few doors down, where Olney-Laytonsville Road and Warfield Road meet, you’ll find another Laytonsville dining treasure: The Office Café and Lounge. The Office boasts specials like mussels cooked with bacon and Blue Moon beer, ahi tuna burgers with wasabi mayo, and even a decadent crispy pork barbeque sandwich with sweet apple coleslaw and pickled onions.
The place is a great addition to the community – a casual dining atmosphere with big flavor. You’ll find televisions playing the hot games of the night and great beer on tap. In their words, it’s a true “meeting place” in Laytonsville’s small town food scene.
Beyond noshing your way through your time in Laytonsville, the town is home to Blue Mash, an upscale, 18-hole public golf course. Blue Mash offers leagues for all types of golf enthusiasts, as well as clinics for all levels of golfers, and spring break/summer camps for junior golfers. But back to the food – Blue Mash also has a grill to quench your appetite after a morning on the links.
